It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

This course was a good intro especially in setting all the necessary software for future courses. I suggest to read the manuals, books and other readings the profs suggest. The resources are helpful.

I do not think it is worth the money as the content is really basic and installation of software can be learnt online.

Too little content. Can finish the entire course in a few hours. Could be compressed into the first week of a course

If you can install R & RStudio and sign up for Github, then you're 80% finished with this course before you start.

Basic setup of R and Git.
Prefer Treehouse's integrated workshop structure for tasks like these and/or youtube.

Extremely remedial. Not worth the time or cost on it's own, unfortunately it's required for the specialization.

Is this entire course going to be watching videos of powerpoint slideshows, wrapped in a rather buggy website?

Very, very, very basic intro. The entire 4 weeks could have (and should have) been condensed into 1 week.

I didnt learn anything about data science. I could have learned how to install all those tools by myself

There just wasn't much to this class. It's not bad information, but it could have been done in one week.

It's an extremely basic introduction... which doesn't help in much for the next session (R Programming)

OK course. A brief overview, but the sequence of material isn't that well thought out in my opinion.

VERY basic course, some of the week's assignments were simply installing software for future use...

Maybe, I am already somehow experienced, but I think that the time I spent on that was a waste :/

This course is very basic and takes nowhere near 1 month. I spent about 3 hours in total on it.

i feel that the course need more explanation .. i got really lost in the begging of the HW

This module is just enough material for 1 or 2 lectures with "How to get started" notes..

Good introduction of what is to come, but nothing too provocative or thought provoking.

The instructor is an automated speaker, it was too bad, I couldn't focus at all.

the speech is too fast to be catch up with and doesn't have much useful contents

Absolutely interesting, but a loss of time if someone already knows the basics.

Didn't provide much info beyond the basics of git. Could have skipped this one.

Not sure this should be a course that is charged ....

It's great to learn how to use GitHub but this hardly qualifies as a course.
